Sunday 1st April - final pre-season warm-up race at the Indy Road Course

This is the official sign-up thread for the fourth and final weekly pre-season race. By this time, we will have had three 'official' warm-up races and an interim week where hopefully some racing will have occurred in my absence.

By this point, hopefully we will have a good number of drivers. Specifically, I would hope the following will all be involved:

Myself
IronCity
fick
Appswah
Phatmann
abu97
Sminky
muscularmatt
Makavelian
...and others?

Racing aids will be relaxed, however I would recommend where possible that traction control, the driving line, skid recovery force and active steering are turned off (in that order of priority, for those still getting to grips with the game).

For this challenge, we will be heading back over the American shores and will be buckling up with some American monster cars to boot.

Racing Itinerary

Date: Sunday 1st April 2012
Time: 20:00 (GMT)

20:00-20:30 - Q1 (30 minute qualifying/testing session)
20:30-21:30 (approx.) - R1 (20 lap race, grid decided on qualifying times)

Follow-up race to be decided on the evening.

Track - Indy Road Course



Length: 2.61 miles
Straight length: 0.58 miles
Elevation difference: 11.5 ft
Corners: 13

Entry requirements

Car: Chevrolet Camaro Z28 '69



Power: 322 BHP
Weight: 1085kg
Drivetrain: FR

This car is acquired from the New Car Dealership and should then immediately be race-modified. No other parts are permitted to be purchased for this car, except for Racing Hard tyres (or worse).

Tyres: Racing Hard or worse

As far as racing aids, traction control will be allowed, as will the driving line, skid recovery force, mild active steering and the ABS. This is in the hope that those of you struggling to keep control of your car will have a more enjoyable time and keep things more competitive.

Of course, those who wish to play without are encouraged to do so (I know I won't be using any aids).

--

Some American muscle fun on a really good track.

Compared with what we will have raced as a group beforehand, these Camaros are lightning fast.

Sign-up below. All of you.

Oh sh*t, I am frightened of FR cars. Good to know ahead of time, as i need much practice with these vehicles. I already have my butternut Camaro in the garage, just need to modify it.

Same, I'm scared of FR cars when they skid and turn. Eventhough I hate them, I won't use traction control as it'll ruin the challenge

You guys do realise that all the drivers in professional racing, up to the highest level, all use cars with traction control and ABS. I don't get why everyone is trying to be so macho and insist on not using it.

I honestly might have to turn up traction control a few notches for an FR vehicle, but I'll make an honest attempt to understand them better first. I am fine with FF's. Although would traction control help me after someone bumps my back end and I can't get it back under control?

Should be interesting this race for the people who don't use aids.

I think you go faster without aids .
Just need to put more thought into the throttle control coming out of the corners though.

That is the case most of the time however a track with a lot of corners will increase your lap time using no aids. I migth put traction control on 2 but hopefully that'll be the only aid I'll use

I tried the challenge Mak set out a few weeks back in arcade mode with that FR burner vehicle and I couldn't keep it on the track. After 4 restarts I just shut it down. But the Camaro does handle a little more "boaty".

I'm guessing it's because it weigh's less than most cars as 1080 kg seems pretty light upping up the response of the vehicle

A skilled driver using no aids won't go any faster than a skilled driver using them. They just make things a little easier.

I noticed that I was a faster in the top gear intermediate challenge using the lotus without aids. With the aids on I noticed I was much more sluggish going round corners . I've not tested any other cars out but try it if you don't believe me.

That's the real key. Steady throttle & only fully open when straight to avoid fish-tail.

The traction/skid controls really reign in the power, both from the grid and through corners. Once you get used to racing without you can find them really frustrating to use.

I'll be aid-free on the night.
